In his recent interview, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi didn't think there's a possibility of war between Pakistan and India. "Terrorists belong to Jaish-e-Mohammad sponsored by Azhar Masood in Pakistan and are deriving support from there", she said.

India has always been asking for JeM chief Masood Azhar to be designated an worldwide terrorist by the United Nations, a move that has been blocked by China. Evidence are being scrutinised by NIA. She said, "Pakistan was expanding the arc of terror beyond the Pir Panjal range and resorting to ceasefire violations to abet infiltration of terrorists into the Indian side of the border".

Security forces in Indian Kashmir were on high alert Monday amid two deadly attacks mounted within a three-day span on defense installations by suspected Pakistan-based militant groups, including an assault that was still going on, officials said.

Attacking the Narendra Modi government over lack of policy towards Pakistan, the Congress on Tuesday asked it to spell out its response to Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti that India should be talking to the neighbouring country. "We have to work together with the Jammu and Kashmir government". "We have given a lot of proof to Pakistan, but that won't have proved beneficial for us".

"India and Pakistan have fought enough wars". How long will we make sacrifices?

On a question regarding Rohingyas' settlement in the state and their alleged support to the anti-nationals, the Defence Minister replied, "We will share all the inputs and information with the state Police on this issue".

Giving out the details of the attack, Sitharaman said that three terrorists were killed while the fourth was a guide and he did not enter the campus. "They then hid in a nearby building", Sahi said of Monday's attack.

His remarks came at a time when the security agencies, including the army, have been battling increased attempts by terrorist groups to target them.

Sitharaman also held a high-level security review meeting. "Six fatal casualties, including a civilian were caused by the terrorists".

Those who attended the meeting included Union home secretary Rajiv Gauba and director of Intelligence Bureau Rajiv Jain.

The Indian Army retaliated effectively, he said.

The minister was in Jammu to take stock of the situation at the Sunjuwan Army camp which was stormed stormed February 10 morning by three heavily armed militants who entered the residential quarters of junior commissioned officers, spraying bullets and hurling bombs.
